      Hello all. I am in North Carolina and recently started my own business as a Notary Signing Agent. I am still in the processing of getting the business established and need help with creating a marketing plan as well as obtaining business funding (start-ups do not qualify for much I am finding out the hard way). I have been relying on savings and credit cards but realize that is not sustainable. Open to actionable advice on steps to take :).

      Business loans are one way, I just attended a free business webinar where they mentioned one of the best ways is to get a business loan, they have lower interest rates than credit cards but have a business plan on how you are going to use the money, it helps a lot for the bank to see how you plan to spend the money and also helps you keep tracking and accomplishing your goals as you progress.

      Try looking into grants. There are tons on HelloAlice.com or Fearless Fund or iFundwomen. Google grants in your industry or grants for women and grants within your ethnicity. Good Luck!

      I agree with others on applying for grants as well. You also may want to look at business pitch competitions. So many out here in communities across the country. Good luck!
